Yamasaki, H., Komasawa, N., Yonehara, S. and Minami, T. (2018) Comparison of sitting and standing position for central venous catheter insertion; A crossover simulation trial. February 1st. [epub ahead of print].
Central venous catheters (CVCs) provide vascular access for fluid resuscitation, drugs, and antibiotics, and also allow hemodynamic monitoring and cardiac pacing. Recently, the ultrasound-guided CVC (US-CVC) technique has become available, which allows differentiation between veins and arteries and improves CVC safety [1,2]. Previous study has shown that arm abduction can enhance the real-time ultrasound-guided infraclavicular proximal axillary venous catheterization . However, there has been no study evaluating the doctor position for US-CVC insertion.
